In destination to Windows 10the update KB5020683 is presented by Microsoft as an out-of-cycle update that should improve the out-of-box experience (OBE) for the 2004, 20H2, 21H1, 21H2 and 22H2 versions of the operating system in its Home and Pro editions.
It is thus about the first boot experience with versions of Windows 10 and with a screen as part of the configuration procedure (or to accept certain changes). The KB5020683 update is installed during the OOBE process if an internet connection is available.
Where appropriate, its purpose is to encourage the user to perform a upgrade to Windows 11, in the event that its hardware configuration allows it. A button for the upgrade is largely put forward, but it is possible to opt for a later reminder in order to pass the proposal.
An effective KB5020683 update?
If the user does not follow up, the proposal to upgrade to Windows 11 ends up in the Settings application and Windows Update.
This is usually where a Windows 10 user can also learn that their PC does not meet the minimum system requirements to run Windows 11.
Spotted by Neowin (capture above), so update KB5020683 doesn’t add much, except for one more way for Microsoft to push more users to Windows 11. A tactic whose effectiveness is subject to deposit, especially since such an update conditional on the out-of-box experience is not likely to concern the crowds.
Windows 11 climbs slowly
According to StatCounter, the market share of Windows 11 on computers equipped with Microsoft’s operating system is 16,1 %. It is 69.7% for Windows 10 and 10.2% for Windows 7, which benefits from the professional side of ultimate paid updates.
Windows 10 end of support is scheduled for October 14, 2025. It is a deadline which is probably Microsoft’s most effective argument in order to encourage the switch to Windows 11. A date still too distant?
Microsoft might be tempted to remind you when releasing the few remaining Windows 10 feature updates.
